# Is there a write-multi-cell-at-once function in VBS for Excel?

T

#### Tony Bansten

As well known I can write into an Excel cell a certain value with in a VBS script with e.g.

objWorksheet.Cells(2, 5).Value = 55

Can I write the value 55 into multiple cells at once?
Imagine I want to write in all cells 2,5 .... 2,37 the value 55.
Do I really have to iterate through all cells individually or is there a function like

objWorksheet.multiCells((2,5),(2,37)).Value = 55

?

No iteration is needed:

Sub tony()
Set objWorksheet = ActiveSheet
objWorksheet.Range(Cells(2, 5), Cells(2, 37)).Value = 55
End Sub

You only need a loop if you want individual values in individual cells, and
by using arrays properly, maybe not even then.

It's probably better to fully qualify those ranges in case objWorksheet isn't
the activesheet.

with objWorksheet
.Range(.Cells(2, 5), .Cells(2, 37)).Value = 55
end with

or

objWorksheet.Range("E2").resize(1,33).Value = 55
